RECIPE

 BBQ Rack of lamb
with Roasted-Shallot Vinaigrette by Jamie Purviance
Nova Scotia lamb meat

"When it comes to "fine dining" grilling (which, yes, does exist), nothing tops a rack of lamb. While I like leg of lamb, lamb chops, and even ground lamb, nothing tops a rack. The rich and tender rib meat is a real treat." Mike Lang

IngredientS

 

Vinaigrette
1 large shallot, about 1 ounce, unpeeled
1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 racks of lamb, 1 to 11⁄2 pounds each, frenched
  Extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 racks of lamb, 1 to 11⁄2 pounds each, frenched
  Extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

Preparation

1. To make the vinaigrette: Lightly brush or spray the shallot all over with a bit of the olive oil. Grill over Direct Medium heat until it is blackened in spots and very soft throughout, about 15 minutes, turning once. Remove the shallot from the grill and allow to cool. Remove and discard the peel. Finely chop the shallot and put it in a medium bowl along with the remaining vinaigrette ingredients, whisking in the rest of the olive oil to create a smooth dressing.

2. Trim any excess fat from the lamb. Allow to stand at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Lightly brush or spray the lamb with oil and season with the thyme, salt, and pepper. Loosely cover the bones with aluminum foil to keep them from burning. Sear, bone side down first, over Direct Medium heat until lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes, turning once (flareups might occur). Move the lamb over Indirect Medium heat and grill to desired doneness, about 15 minutes more for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into chops. Serve warm with the vinaigrette.
